    i havent been bowling in ages. saw a place w/the following rates:

    $6 per game or $55 per hr for the lane

    you have to reserve ahead of time if you want the $55/hr lane rental.

    How long does it take for 1 person to bowl?

    That's hella expensive. If you choose bowl by hour, it will always turn into speed bowling and your score will reflect.
    I used to get 4 people to do speed bowling and we can always get 2 games per person out of an hour. So that's 8 games total in a fast throw and go environment.

    Haha good one Zim.

    As for the average player...if you are playing by yourself then maybe 10 minutes if you take a nice even pace, quicker if you go faster but it may tire you out that way. If you get a lot of people it can take longer. My league we have 5 player teams and a 5v5 takes about 45 minutes for everybody to go.

    you cant play 9 games in one hour

    that would equate to about 1 game every 6 minutes approx, or 1.5 frames per minute.


    where i live they charge $17/hr to rent a lane. I consider this reasonable.

    Easily done. I could do it. But then I am pretty good and throw a decent amount of strikes so that cuts down time.
